[jdev] GSoC Ideas

  I didn't knew about Swift. Had a quick look at it and it is indeed 

  It would be great if there could be a XMPP reference implementation 
for how desktop screen sharing should be carried out. And if Swift could 
provide that baseline it would be a great starting point for other 
IM-clients to implement the same in order to be compatible.

  We would love to see Swift implement the screen sharing features we 
have contributed to the FreeRDP-project. Quality is Enterprise Level and 
the library is written in C. Support is written mainly for X11 on Linux, 
but there is experimental support for Windows and Mac OS X also.

  If there would be a reference implementation in Swift for example, I 
could approach other projects (I am connected to Pidgin) to make 
something compatible and cross-platform.

  The only bad thing is that we must use FreeRDP head, or use their 
nightly builds for upcoming FreeRDP 2.0. (FYI: We have also contributed 
to libnice project for ICE/TURN things, many patches are already merged 
and available upstream but some is not yet released. They'll come in 
libnice 0.1.14)

Best regards,

If you’re in doubt about whether you’re suitable as a mentor, please get in touch with me, but some general guidelines:
>> Must be willing to dedicate an hour a day (in the usual case) up to about 2 hours a day (if you’re unlucky) every work day for the duration of the summer to mentor the students.
>> Must be mentoring for your own software project.
>> Must be known and of high standing in the XSF.
>> Must be able to do a reasonable job of actively mentoring a student, not simply expecting them to get on with writing code unsupervised.
>> Any questions, please discuss.
